Former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg announced this week that he would be jumping into the race for the Democratic nomination.

Given the largely far-left and lackluster field, he may have thought he had a chance.

But while some think him more of a moderate, some of his efforts while New York mayor earned him the nickname “Nanny Bloomberg” and would not fly well in a general elections, like his efforts to get rid of guns and his soda tax.

He may make some who Democratic donors who are more toward the middle more comfortable than someone like Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) or Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) who are very anti-business.

But his entry did not please Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and she made that clear in a tweet that excited some comment given her anti-Semitic comments in the past.

Alrighty, now.

Now had she not had a prior history of comments, one might have looked at that as just a comment on them both being billionaires. But given her history, people didn’t think it was just about billionaires.

Linda Sarsour, who has her own questionable history, came to her buddy’s defense.

And even giving it the most favorable interpretation, it’s playing class warfare.

Um, maybe the answer is not to keep making the comments? Just a thought.
